Your AI in the sky
Next generation weather intelligence
AI powered hurricane intensity forecast
World’s lightest weather sondes
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
Working with us, weather measurement institutions, weather stations and atmospheric researchers can measure weather more precisely while reducing the burden of weather measurement debris into the environment. Additionally, insurance companies, financial institutions and emergency management professionals are able to provide services for people and businesses with our AI-empowered severe tropical storm forecasting model.
Skyfora combines scientific understanding of tropical storms with computer vision, machine learning and IoT technologies. Skyfora’s power pair of weather intelligence consists of the AI empowered Tropical Storm Tracker and lightweight weather instruments StreamSondes.

Awarded in the highly respected Copernicus Masters and Galileo Masters innovation competitions. Part of European Space Agency’s Business Incubator Centre (ESA BIC) until end of 2020.
TROPICAL STORM TRACKER
The Tropical Storm Tracker software provides the most up-to-date weather data possible. A machine learning model issues storm intensity estimates and forecasts with every incoming satellite image, numerical weather forecast and dropsonde measurement. Application segments include insurance linked security funds (ILS), (re)insurance, emergency and disaster management, aviation and shipping.
The StreamSonde is the world´s lightest weather sonde. It weighs less than 15 grams, and it is used as a radiosonde, a dualsonde (i.e. radiosonde during ascent and free falling dropsonde during descent) or as a dropsonde. In all user scenarios, it provides numerous benefits.
“Weather provides some of the most demanding tasks for data processing and forecasting. There is a need to acquire and process weather data faster, in more detail and more reliably than ever before.”
Skyfora, founded in 2019 and based in Helsinki, focuses on weather intelligence research and solutions that allow weather data to be collected more accurately and widely enabling better weather forecast accuracy. The company has also developed the StreamSonde, the world’s lightest weather sonde.
The Finnish next-generation weather intelligence company Skyfora announces an updated Tropical Storm Seasonal Forecast model with proven skill, particularly for the vital Gulf of Mexico area.
Skyfora continues to predict an active Atlantic Hurricane Season following a streak of five above-average seasons 2016-2021. The current forecast is 20 named storms, 9 hurricanes, 4 major hurricanes and an accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) of 182.
The Skyfora team features a unique combination of expertise in weather instrument engineering, atmospheric
science, machine learning and international sales.
